Abstraction on backend languages : "ml" / "c" / "js"
@author Mathieu Barbin
@author Mehdi Bouaziz
(** The extension corresponding to the language *)
type ext = string
(** The abstract type of a back-end language *)
type t
type format = [ `compiled | `interpreted ]
val compare : t -> t -> int
(** building a value of type [Language.t]. If the string is not recognized, the function returns [None] *)
val of_string : ?format:format -> string -> t option
val to_string : t -> string
val pp : t LangPrint.pprinter
val pp_list : t list LangPrint.pprinter
(** if you don't want to do a map + verification of unicity *)
val of_list : string list -> t list option
(** Get a list of language from a string. use the syntax : ["{ml, js, c}"] *)
val parse : string -> t list option
(** Get a printable representation of a list of languages. e.g. "[{ml, js, c}]" *)
val print : t list -> string
(** Force the format of a language.*)
val formate : format -> t -> t
(** {6 Compiled}*)
val ml : t (** Traditional ocaml code *)
val js : t (** JavaScript code, for use on the client (technically interpreted, but not by us) *)
val c : t (** C code, for use with e.g. LLVM *)
(** {6 Sugar} *)
val is_ml : t -> bool
val is_js : t -> bool
val is_c : t -> bool
(**{6 Interpreted}*)
val mli : t (** Traditional ocaml code, to be used in an interpreter (opatop) *)
(** {6 Code generation} *)
In the generated plugins and loaders, there are reference to languages.
{[, L.mli, L.js, etc...
The generated code should contains
module L = BslLanguag
val pp_meta : t LangPrint.pprinter
